The 6 nickel electros from the 2nd master plate (2 line gutters) were used on this issue. No additional electros were produced.

Typically, McCracken did not replace the Ash imprint.

Some sheets had no imprint in left corner due to ink stripping.

There are no known plate #'s but pip marks of course are collectible in the 640on fashion.
